My hopes of this new school were so high. But now I am so sad. It is a college prep school. small, 350 kids in all. difficult child has managed to bring all his grades to B's, but still three weeks until finals. So that could change. But he IS trying. The issues of the kids picking on him has stopped, atleast the past two days. I am picking him up so he doesn't have to ride the bus with them. He has asked (when he is angry) that he not go to this school, he wants to go to the district school of 3000. Granted, the college prep school has much higher expectations and is quite tough. Even more tough with honors classes. But I think if he is getting picked on in a school of 350, what will happen in a school of 3000. Plus, there would be many more battles to fight with teachers who just don't know the kids or care. The last week or so, difficult child has been in the house. Not really talking to the kids he has known the past three years. Then tonight I went on to his myspace. I looked at the pictures from all the kids he use to be friends with. They all hang out together, many pictures of events that have recently taken place. I feel so bad that he is not included. Now second guessing the school. I have absolutely forbid him to switch schools. Now I am sad. He gets a ride to school with a senior. But he takes the bus home. Which drops off at the district school. There he would atleast see kids he knew. But now with the bus thing and the kids picking on him he isn't riding the bus. Any thoughts?
